Pour into 100 c.c. water, and extract with ether. Distil off the
ether and crystallise the solid residue from petroleum spirit.

2.  Acetophenonesemicarbazone.—Mix i gram of semi-
carbazide hydrochloride with I '5 grams of crystallised sodium
acetate, and dissolve in the smallest quantity of warm water.
Add i gram of acetophenone and sufficient spirit to produce a
clear solution when hot. Continue to heat for a few minutes. On
cooling,  the  semicarbazone deposits   as a yellow, crystalline
mass.      CCH.VCO.CH., + NH,.NH.CO.NH.,HC1 + NaC,H,O2

3.  Beckmann's Reaction.—Dissolve  i  gram of aceto-
phenoneoxime in 30 c.c. anhydrous ether, and add gradually
i'5 grams of powdered phosphorus pentachloride.    Distil off the
ether, and add a little water to the residue.    On cooling, crystals
of acetanilide separate.   Recrystallise from water, and determine
the melting point.

4.  Benzoylacetone (Claiseris Reaction).—Six grams of dry,
!                                powdered sodium ethoxide are added to 20 grams of dry ethyl
i                                acetate, and cooled in water.   The sodium ethoxide is prepared
by dissolving 4 grams of sodium in 40 c.c. absolute alcohol, and.
^                             distilling off the excess of alcohol, first from the water-bath, and
'                             then from the metal-bath, in a current of dry hydrogen, the
temperature of the bath being raised gradually to 200°, until
'         ' nothing more passes over. The white cake is detached rapidly
\                            powdered, and the requisite quantity quickly weighed out and

j                            hour, 10 grams of acetophenone are added, when sodium benzoyl
|                            acetone begins to separate. A little ether is added, and, after
1                            standing for a few hours, the sodium compound is filtered and
!                            washed with ether. The sodium compound is then dried in
f                            trje air, dissolved in cold water, and acidified with acetic acid.
